Shawn Finney conducts clinic in Taiwan

Tulane Univ. head coach Shawn Finney will conduct a 4-day coaching clinic in Taipei and, under CTBA's arrangement, instruct Taiwan NT briefly.

Invited by NIKE Taiwan, 40-year-old Finney will hold a 30-man coaching clinic from Aug. 7-10, running every morning. From Aug. 6-10, Finney will take a look at Taiwan NT, whose poor play in the Jones Cup concerns the CTBA and basketball people, in their night practice sessions.

Finney took over as the head coach of Tulane Univ. on July 19, 2000, after coaching as an assistant under Tubby Smith at Yulsa, Georgia and Kentucky.
